What Drives My Landscape Work
In my landscape painting practice the subject is always the light.
Traditionally, the focal point takes the leading role and grabs the eye, but from my perspective, the light is what dominates and provides the work with a feeling of luminosity and a genuine sense of atmosphere.
What is more lyrical and nourishing than the rhythms of nature? It is deeply gratifying and humbling to be witness to such effortless beauty, and paint a pond in a field on a cold fall morning conveying the elegance of frosty, dry grasses and the vivid blue reflection of the sky on the water.
Most of my oil paintings are created solely with a painting knife. With my knife and oil paint I am investigating the beauty of the ephemeral, the passing light, the passing day, seasons, years.
I am finding ways to express how nature speaks to me.
